We were greeted quickly and seated promptly. Our waiter, Williams, was very accommodating and careful to be sure our order was as requested. Super that it was within walking distance from our Sleep Inn hotel.

I stop here every time we're in Grand Island! I just love their pasta diablo and they are extremely reliable in their service and amazing flavor! They've got cheap margaritas and the best queso around!!! I highly recommend!

We were staying next door at the Comfort Inn and this was a good place to grab dinner after a long day on the road. Service was average. The meal was good typical Carlos O'Kelly's.

We were staying at a hotel within walking distance and this was during their college basketball playoff food and drink specials. Awesome margarita specials and for our night, queso specials. We sat and ate/drank at the bar. Super hard working and friendly bartenders. Great ambiance....More
